About
Located on the doorstep of the Swan Valley, Whiteman Park is one of the largest metropolitan recreation and conservation parks in the world. Covering nearly 4,000 hectares, the Park is a place to enjoy life’s simple pleasures – walking or cycling on peaceful bush paths, playing with the kids or simply delighting in the calmness of our unspoilt natural heritage… There’s a lot to see and do including a visit to Caversham Wildlife Park, Motor Museum, Tractor Museum and Revolutions Transport Museum. There’s also Vintage bus, train and tram rides, playgrounds, barbeques and shady picnic areas – you could spend a day there and not see it all!

    Not a bad day out.
    Had Disappointed children that tram ride wasn’t on. Also first place I’ve been that charged to use BBQ facilities. Really enjoyed transport museum though not cheap to get in. Had lovely picnic there and little pool was nice and safe although a bit too busy. Little cafe etc was nice.

    MTT Bus Tour at Whiteman Park Worthwhile
    We did the MTT bus tour at Whiteman Park on Monday. The guide Rebecca was very friendly and knowledgeable, and provided us with lots of interesting facts, and the history of Lew Whiteman. We learnt that he was a kind and generous philanthropist and an avid collector of items and objects from all over the world. The tour was really worthwhile and we would highly recommend doing it. The driver Ian was also really friendly and the guide in the land transport museum Perry was extremely personable and gave our group a great tour of the museum. For a one hour tour and at a cost of $2 each we came away with a wealth of knowledge and had a relaxed and pleasant experience, learning about the different areas in Whiteman Park. All these people are volunteers and passionate about the work they do! Thank you for a pleasant experience on our ‘girl’s’ Weekend away!! 😊

    Very impressed with Whiteman Park
    We were very impressed with Whiteman Park when we visited as a group of six recently. None of us had been for years and we were all pleasantly surprised at how much was available there. Lovely cafe with good service. Very impressed with the friendly efficient ladies in the office where we purchased tickets for the bus tour. Rebecca, our tour guide, and also the gentleman who drove the bus were very friendly and gave us excellent information about the history of the park. Mussel Pool was interesting as was the fantastic transport museum . We could have stayed longer but a picnic lunch in the well situated long tables in the shade was calling! Some children were really enjoying the pool and water play available in the park too. What a great idea! Thanks to everyone who we encountered on our visit for making our day so special.

Whiteman Park is absolutely Huge.

Some of its attraction, maybe the best Motor Museum in Australia, a Tractor Museum, a Farming Eqpt Museum, a Tourist Tour on a Historic Bus, a Mini Electronic, train, a Historic Rail Stn, Information Cafe, toddlers water play facility, a cricket field, bushland with a stream and more Picnic Facilities.

Wow! I never knew what the park had to offer. I don't think we will get it all done in a day and will definitely be back. I highly recommend the bus tour as it's a great way to see the park and hear about the history. Just amazing!

There was something special about being in the still of Whiteman Park after dark.
The Woylie walk was very informative and our guide friendly and happy to answer all our questions.
At $20 each it was well worth a visit to a part of the park you would otherwise never get to see.

Very nice and informative tour, they talk about local fauna and flora focusing on quendas and woylies, and you get to see them.
Highly recommended

Found this tour interesting. The ranger was very professional.
My only criticism would be that it was a little too long for young children.
Overall it was well presented and I would recommend it to my friends.

Went to Whiteman Park last week to take tram and train ride. Neither were running due to "fire Danger". It was 23 degrees and raining. Where's the danger? Won't be returning until I can be assured that the attractions are running.

Just did the Nocturnal Woylie Walk and would recommend it. The guides are very informative and have a good knowledge of both the Woylies and the overall park environment. Then there's the Woylies... no shortage of sightings and amazing how close they get to the tour group. Well worth the $20 ticket price.
